Solves Shopping Problems; Shops Will Exhibit Gifts at Bazaar "The big thing about Christ- mas Bazaar this year is that it's going to be in Alum!" declared Carol Southworth '46, chairman of "Christmas in Many Lands," the first peacetime C. A. Bazaar that the present Wellesley generation has seen. Between 40 and 50 ex- hibits, including many from Bos- ton and Wellesley shops, will be featured at the bazaar, which will be open from 3:30 to 9:30 p. m. Monday, December 3. Madrigal singing and carols by the language clubs will carry out the International Christmas theme, while 650 newly-dressed dolls will be on dispay. The carillon will be played during the bazaar. Punch, cookies, a»d a fortune teller are also promised. Sweaters, jewelry, socks, gifts for men, mittens, linen, silver from prominent stores, candy from the Well and books from Hatha- way, are predicted by Marilyn MacGregor '47, chairman of ex- hibits. In addition, there will be Alumnae calendars, decorated flat- iron door-stops, magazine subscrip- tions and cosmetics. Charitable organizations, such as The Crip- pled Children's Organization, Polish, Yugoslavian, and Russian relief. Women's Society of Chris- tian Service. World-wide Missions Handicraft Center, Disabled Vete- rans Association, and the Tuber- culosis Association will maintain booths. The decoration of Alum, which will be a secret until the day of the hazaar, is under the direction of Margerv Myers '47. Nancy Forsythe '47 is in charge of enter- tninment for the day, while Jean Oliver '4fi heads the poster com- mittee. Nancy Kemp '48 will sup- ervise the finances of the bazaar. Four newsreel firms will take movies of the dolls, which will be shipped to Boston welfare agencies the day after the bazaar. Ann Van Meter '4fi is general chairman, and Jean Titehener '49 is freshman doll chairman. Miss Izzeddin To Give Arab Slant on Zion The Arabian point of view on the Palestine question will be dis- cussed by Miss Nejla Izzeddin, first delegate to this country of the newly organized Arab Office at a lecture Monday, December 10 at 7:30 p. m. in Pendleton Hall. Forum and the Departments of History and Political Science will sponsor the lecture. Miss Izzeddin, a native of Leban- on, received her early training in the American School for Girls in Beirut, and then attended the Lycee Racine in Paris before enter- ing Vassar College as a junior. After her graduation from Vassar, she received the degree of Ph.D. in Arab History at the University of Chicago. For two years she held the traveling fellowship of the Oriental Institute there, which she used for research in England, and for travel on the Continent. Her professional life has in- cluded teaching, research, and ad- ministration. At Beirut, she taught at the American Junior College, while carrying on research at the American University of Beirut. Later she taught two years in Iraq at the Girls' Training School and in the Higher Training Col- lege for men and women, where no woman had ever before lectured to wen's classes. For three years thereafter she did research on Arab civilization in the Oriental Library of the Jesuit University in Beirut, while last year she was principal of the Girls' Lycee in Damascus. Federation Is Answer, Says Vernon Nash "The utter futility of loose as- sociations of sovereign states has been proven throughout history," said Dr. Vernon Nash, nationally known lecturer, and former pro- fessor at Yenching University, China, in an address on World Federation in Alumnae Hall, last Friday. Because of the atomic bomb, "yesterday was a thousand years ago." Not only is modern man "obsolete", but so are exist- ing forms for world cooperation. The only hope for lasting peace, according to Dr. Nash, lies in the abolition of traditional bonds of nationalism, and the creation of a World Federation. Strongly advocating the swift removal of UNO as an instrument for international reconstruction, Dr. Nash condemned it as "the only human body that grew from infancy to senility in less than a second." Our need is for a sys- tem of world government so pow- erful that it differs from UNO not only in degree, but in kind. Criti- cizing academic and religious lead- ers who justify UNO as "better than nothing", Dr. Nash said, "Anything less than adequate is equivalent to nothing." Root of War Although sovereignty is admit- tedly the root of war, the first act of the San Fi-ancisco Confer- ence was designed to leave sove- reignty "untouched and unim- paired". "Every step after that," said Dr. Nash, "was a step away from peace." The unanimity rule, giving any one nation supreme veto power, not only prevents UNO from preserving peace but from controlling the "nations most likely to make war." The virtual impossibility of amending the charter alone makes it undesirable, and according to Dr. Nash, for (Continued on Page 6, Column 1) C. G. officers an "atom-balloon" Miss Elizabeth F.

Burke of the Department of Physics, technical adviser, and Mr. Chase, college electrician. Much of the trouble, however, is the fault of the individual radios. It has been suggsted therefore, that new tubes or antennae would improve recep- tion. Jo Lundholm '47, program di- rector, went to New York last weekend to attend a conference sponsored by IBS for all member stations to discuss plans for all colleges throughout the East. Since WBS'is still interested in doing a request show or a Hit Parade, put requests for records in the radio office if you have any favorites. There is always an op- Medical Aptitude Tests For Pre Med Students Given Here Next Month The Association of the Amer- ican Colleges has announced that the Medical Aptitude Test will be given at Wellesley December 14, at 3:00 p.m., in Room 236 Green Hall. The Placement Office requests that applicants register with them immediately. This test will not be given again in the spring. The next test will be given in Octo- ber. 1946. This test is now one of the nor- mal requirements for admission to a medical school and should be taken this winter by all students who have not already taken the Did who intend to enter med- ical school in 1946. The test meas- ures the student's ability to learn material similar to that which will be studied in medical school. It also measures the student's gen- eral information and scientific background and ability to draw accurate conclusions from a given set of data. Miss Risley Reports Belgian YWCA Active During War Head of House Visits Belgium It is an extraordinary sensa- tion, according to Miss Florence Risley, Head of House at Caze- nove, to see one's own clothing contribution to European relief being unpacked in Belgium. Miss Risley speaks from experience; for while the rest of us wonder some- times "what finally did happen to that sweater." Miss Risley was on hand last summer to see one of her own wool dresses emerge from a packing crate on the other side of the Atlantic. Sent to Belgium by the Amer- ican YWCA, Miss Risley's mis- sion during the summer was to discover the effect of this war on the YWCA organization which she had been instrumental in es- tablishing there at the end of the first World War. "What I actu- ally saw, however," she says. "was the lives of my own friends," for Miss Risley had lived in Bel- gium from the end of World War I until 1926. "On the whole," Miss Risley re- ports, "I found the organization extraordinarily alive. Although materially it has been hard hit. the membership is mor- loyal and determined than ever before." A professor of Economics a • the Uni- versity of Brussels termed the YW's work most important at present "because it is not attach- ed to any political party, lan- guage or church — it is a meeting place for all kinds of people." Underground Meetings "One of the proofs of its vital- ity," Miss Risley asserted, "is that when the Germans closed the association, the members in prac- tically all the cities went right on with clandestine meetings in the guise of music classes or lit- erary groups." This spirit Miss Risley feels "immensely gratify- ing," especially because it remain- ed alive not only through the ex- citement of the first secret meet- ings, but throughout the entire two years of their closing. Dur- ing the whole period not one mem- ber of the groups gave them away. Although the YWCA did no actual resistance work as a group, many of its individual members, Miss Risley found, had been ac- tive in the movement, manufac- turing false identity cards and passing along information for the underground. All resistance, she points out, was done chain-fash- ion, for protection. You might, for instance, receive a message to tell your hairdresser something; the message would probably mean nothing to you, and the hairdress- er would be the only member of the chain with whom you would come in contact. Wellesley Actors' Guild, Harvard Dramatic Club, To Fill Male Roles After starting the season with a modern comedy, Barnswallows now turns to a religious play — simple and dramatically intense. On Fri- day and Saturday, December 7 and 8, they will present Paul Claudel's The Tidings Brought to Mary, a miracle play which is set in the middle ages and is particu- larly appropriate to the Christmas season. It tells the story of a charming young girl who is forced into the solitary life of a leper through an act of simple goodness, thus beginning- her rise to glory and to sainthood. Toddy Melvoin '48, who made her first appearance before Barn's au- diences last vear as Lily in Hotel Universe, will play the role of Violaine, the heroine. Gertrude Puccia '47 is cast as Mara, the evil sister of Violaine. She was a mem- ber of the cast of John Doe which was presented here during her Freshman year and has also play- ed in several Theater Workshop productions. This summer she re- ceived special training at Rollins Dramatic School on Long Island. Martha Richardson '46 will play the role of Violaine's mother — a good simple woman who wants only the best for her family. Rickv, who played in Barn's production of in 1943 and has directed as well as acted in Theater Work- shop clays, spent the past summer at the Perry Mansfield camp where she had a vital part in the dramatic activities. Newcomers to the Alum staee will be Grace Gere '49, Rita Rocerson '49, Leonore Harlowe '49, Muriel Rowe '49, Jean Donald '48. Phvllis Wendover '47, and Mimi Gilchrist '47. In the role of Pierre, the strong and faithful lover, will be Henry Robbins. a member of the Harvard Dramatic Club, who nlayed in the bier HarvarH-Rndo'ifFe n'-^iwion of last soring. Ro^er Johnston, also of the Harvard Dramatic Club, will be cast as Jacques, the simnle fellow who is betrothed to Violaine.

Their program will include Mozart's Quartet in F major, Beethoven's Quartet in B flat major. Op. 130, and a new quartet by Darius Mil- haud. The Quartet is composed of Josef Roisman, first violin, Ed- ear Ortenberg, second violin, Boris Krovt, viola, and Mischa Schneid- er, violoncello. These artists had pained fame as outstanding vir- tuosi on their respective instru- ments before joining the Quartet. The American debut of the Budapest Strine Quartet occurred at Cornell University in December of 1930. During their first season, they plaved twenty concerts and won nraise from the public and critics of New York C«'tv. For the last five years, the Quartet has given 24 concerts each season under the sponsorshin of the Gert- rude Clarke Whittall Foundation in the Library of Congress, an in- ternntionallv recognized center for chamber music.

Noise is a wonderful thing in the great out- doors. In a college dormitory its merits are of a more dubious nature. However, it is diffi- ( uli to confine noise to its proper habitat, so it is often found in long corridors and rooms with doors left wide open, even during class hours and after ten o'clock at night. Believe it or not, there are some people who like to study during the day time and there are others who find it possible to get to bed at ten o'clock or Boon after. Why not give them a chance in -tudy and to sleep? The problem of noise in the dormitories isn't a new one. Each year around the time when most of the quizzes are being given and papers are due, the complaints roll into the faculty and Dean's office about the lack of quiet. How- ever, the responsibility for keeping conditions conducive to study in the dormitory is actually in the hands of the individual student, not the faculty or Deans. Last year "Quiet Hours" were dropped from College regulations because ii was fell i hat dents could maintain sufficient quiet in the halls of residence by using common 51 nsc hours of study and sleep. It seems reason- able to expect college students to use their judg- 1 its on such matters. All that is really Deeded to solve the noise blem is a bit of considi 1 al ion foi I lie othei person. Of course, the fact that yon have just finished your third class oi the morning is g I -on for jubilation, but the girl down the corridor may be studying for b quiz she has the next hour. Quiel might mean the differ- ence between knowing a fact and not knowing it. Anotliei am — hold after-date bull -ions behind closed doors instead of in the corridors. Even the softest i oice n sounds in long corridon such a then art in \\--lie-i.-, don Besides, you know bow madden- ing it IS to In ;• f n m nn ni- of B Conversation and not be able to hi if being said. Having sleep disrupted by such noises is even less de- ble. A little & don on the part, of each rtu- ni and there would be do problem concerning noise in the Wellesley dormitory. Once in a hile people do forget bow much noise they irgai bill finally passes the conference committee? Because we have suffered less material damage iban oibcr nations, we are able to give more than they. This fact gives us a great respon- sibility. It does not give us the right to sit m judgment on our fellow men. Our President has now asked Congress to appropriate an additional §1,350,000,000. This request has brought forth criticism of UNRRA's "inefficiency," coupled with the demand that America give through a purely national organ- ization. International economic cooperation failed after the first World War because of 111 -neb nationalistic attitudes. It is our duty to see that such an attempt does not fail again. UNRRA'- directors admit the organization's mistakes. The fact remains that only UNRRA has the resources to do what must be done. The director of UNRRA has told us bluntly that unless a second appropriation is author- ized by the end of the year, two months will lapse before help to Europe can be continued. The old adage that democracy always works -lowly is no excuse for delay now. We can not ease our consciences later by looking back and noting the bitter irony in saving thou- sands through UNRRA only to have them die for lack of continuing aid. We must act now Beyond the Campus Virginia Guild '1*6 President of Forum The nation-wide battle that rages over the question of the wages of automobile workers takes on the qualities of uncontrolled, economic warfare. Two economic forces of the foremost magnitude in the na- tion thrash at each other in a head- on, knock-down, drag-out fight, while the Government and the people look on in helpless conster- nation. In a war of an economic nature such as this, where the w capons are strength in money and in m embers, and conse que n 1 1 y, where Might will be permitted to make the so-call- ed Right which will direct the rest of the negotiations between labor and management all over the country during the reconversion period, these two powerful organi- zations can and will cause for each other and for bystanders, innocent and not so innocent, losses of mil- lions of dollars, both in capital in- vestments and in the health and well-being of the union members whose money should not have to be turned back to them in strike wages. The pathetic waste of hu- man resources that ensues from a catastrophe of this ilk is augment- ed bv the fact that it is not justice which decides to whom shall go the victory. It is the theory that our social legislation of late has con- demned as out-moded — the survival of the fittest. Police Force Needed If the police have the uncontest- ed rieht to step in and arrest two gentlemen who are knocking each other's eyes out and drag them in- to court where they may argue their cases and be forced to come to a peaceable agreement.whv is there not the need for some kind of compulsion to submit the matter to the test of justice even more im- porant in this case? In a brawl be- tween two private citizens, one of whom seems to have a claim on something from the other, the forces of justice in the commun- ity do not usually allow the strongest to take all he phases because he pleases and is strong enough to eet it, nor do they_ allow him to refuse to give what is due because he is strong enough to withstand the demands of the other. Some consideration is given to the justifiability of the claims of the one and to the ability of the other to meet the demands. When so many private citizens are in- volved in the tug-of-war between two of the most potent economic and political forces in the coun- try, some among us fail to see why the analogy is not accurate. Some measures must be taken to insure that it is some kind of justice — not the ability to hold out the longest — which will decide this issue. The obvious reaction cf every- one who considers this proposition and has given the case some thought already will be that his chosen side is right, and if we force a decision on the two parties, the other side is sure to be dissatis- fied; the trouble will pop up again as soon as they have re-inforced and rallied their forces. That is the sort of thing that happens When a Might Makes Right case is carried through to the finish. In the last world war, and in this one, discounting any feelings" we may have on the truth of our cause, we must admit that we won because we were mightier. The enemies felt that they were Right but not Mighty enough, and the Teaction was only to strive in the next twenty years to become Mightier, and in that, Righter. As long as there is no strong world govern- ment to force decisions on the basis of Right, to chastise a country properly for invading a weaker country, Might will continue to be the idiotic criterion of world dis- putes. Present All Facts In order that a just decision may be the result of compul- sory arbitration in a case such as the' General Motors-UAW strike, all the facts must be presented. It is difficult to understand how a fair settlement of a wage dispute can be made if the arbiters are not supplied with the most undisputed, objective facts that can be found concerning the copJ of living and the cost and profits of the indus- try. Both the damage that such a disagreement does to the public welfare and the real issues of jus- tice that are involved indicate that the Federal Government is the one and the only one to bring the two opposing forces to an orderly and fair settlement. SHADES OF RIP VAN WINKLE "He was a wise man who invented sleep." At this point in the semester, most people start referring to sleep as the thing of which nobody seems to get enough, at least not at night. We get trapped by the sandman while studying in the Brooks Room or half way through class. We begin counting the number of seconds we can stay in bed after the third bell has rung, and still make breakfast. And there are those whose program of morning sleeping converts breakfast into a brownie at the El Table be- fore a nine-forty. All of which is pretty silly, any way you look at it. We don't pretend to have become author- ities on much of anything after three years and three months at Wellesley. But this much we do know — in fact we think it ought to be tin- kind of common knowledge thai doesn't need a footnote — namely, that sleep is here to stay. In fact we find it so useful that we find we can't get along without it, try as we may. Winn we f 1 1-1 came to Wellesley we used to be im- pressed with the harried young lady who shouted to the world in general that "She liasn 1 been to bed for a week and my dear, she Bimply -11 i know when Bhe will get there." Now we simply consider her a bore. No doubt the geniuses among our acquaint- ance can go to sleep with unsolved problems of higher mathematics -till lurking in their re- spective minds. But we, poor average souls, jomehow find that the amoeba we drew at nine o'clock more nearly resembles a respi able amoeba Iban the one I 1 d off at two a.m. "Sleep it is a blessed thing, beloved from pole to pole." But if you really want to know bow nici I just listen bo someoni who hasn't had any recently (She'll go into rapture sufficient to sell a Wellesley b1 i pallet to the Beauty Rest Corporation.) Or v. n try it yourself. FREE PRESS The Editors do not hold them- selves responsible for statements in this column. All contributions for this column must be signed with the full name of the author.

Letter from Dean Ella Keats Whiting To the Wellesley College News : Last summer for the first time everv Wellesley undergraduate took home with her a list of books to guide her vacation reading. The lists were prepared with the hope of encouraging serious reading during the longest summer vaca- tion we have ever had. For the upperclassmen, suggestions were made by the major departments, but for the freshman class there was one list of books. This fall an effort has been made by the Com- mittee on Curriculum and Instruc- tion, assisted by the Student Educa- tion Committee, to discover how much reading was done by the Class of 1948 and to invite criticisms and suggestions. Questionnaires were distributed to the 419 members of 1948 who were freshmen last year at Welles- ley; 279 nuestionnaires were re- turned, and of these only six were completely blank. Thus, 273 stu- dents all indicated that thev had done some reading of the books on the list. The number of books read completely ranged from one to fourteen. In addition, manv stu- dents indicated that thev had read parts of a number of books. No count has been made of the num- ber of books "found rewarding" and "not rewarding," but it is clear that there are many more checks in the column marked "re- warding" than in the second col- umn. Many adjectives are used to de- scribe the list: forbidding, formid- able, heavy, dull; stimulating, in- teresting, profitable, excellent. Comments upon the list range from such statements as: "This is a re- diculous reading list," "too long, very boring selections," to such statements as: "This was a very well chosen list," "The list wiiS educational, broadening, interest- ing." In commenting upon the Dlan in general, some students said that freshmen could be trusted to choose their own reading; others said they definitely did not approve of anv program for summer reading. Some spoke of the conflict with summer jobs; some, of the need of relaxation and of distaste for reading done with a sense of obli- gation. A larger number, however, exnressed aDDroval.Here are sev- eral ouotations. "I would personal- ly welcome a list of suggested summer reading for all three of mv college summers." "I think a program of summer reading is an excellent, addition to the curricu- lum." "Such a list of recommend- ed reading should be made avail- "Me to every class every summer." "I know that the family profits as murh as the student when the books are right at hand." A rood many students thought that the freshman list was too long and many of the books too diffi- cult. In making suggestions for the future, several peonle recom- mended the Yale nlan of requiring the reading of eight, classics in the summer; others said thev would welfome a longer list with more choice, accomnanied by the sugges- tion that eight or ten bonks should he read during the vacation. There was rather widespread feeling that a summer reading list should con tain more fiction, more noetrv. and a greater number of contemnorary hooks than anneared on +he list last summT. Among snecifie sug- gestions which were m«de. the fol- lowing hooks and authors were (Continued on Page 6, Column 3) WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS, NOVEMBER 29, 1945 Margie Torbert Rates Music as "First Love" Orchestra Head Played Violin When She Was Nine; Gave Concert With Boston "Pops" Last Spring by Bea Alfke '/,8 "Excalibur and I were standing on the stage of Symphony Hall one night last spring — and the first people I saw were my next- door neighbors from home!" This was Margaret Torbert '46, Head of Orchestra, in her first performance with a well-known orchestra. The occasion was Wel- lesley night at the Boston Tops. With Arthur Fiedler conducting, Margie and Lucille Wetherbee, last year's head of Orchestra, played a Bach concerto for two violins. "We practiced that con- certo so much that I must have known it in my sleep," Margie exclaimed. She does add, how- ever, that all the faces made her knees weak for a moment because they had had only one rehearsal with Mr. Fiedler. "He was very comforting, though," laughed Margie, "and would look over and cue us in. After a while I even began to recognize many of my friends from Wellesley in the au- dience." Started Violin When Nine Margie and her violin Excali- bur, which gets its name from King Arthur's jeweled sword, have been together for many years. She has played the violin since she was nine, and started play- ing the piano so much before that, that she can't remember exactly when it was. "But I went through the stage of hating to practice, and somehow the piano was left by the wayside," Margie said, adding, "I guess the only reason the violin survived was that I was in the school orchestra and had to practice for that!" She's glad now that she did stick at it, for music has devel- oped into Margie's first love. Play- ing in a group is much more sat- isfying than playing alone, she thinks, for "it's just like any oth- er thing where you're part of a team and know that you're doing something necessary to make it work right." Played in School Orchestra Playing at church functions, in her high school orchestra, in the New Jersey All-State High School Orchestra, and with the Maple- wood, New Jersey, Symphony kept her in practice with group work before coming to Wellesley. Here she continued her violin lessons with Mr. Richard Burgin and joined the Wellesley orches- tra. Margie also plays in vari- ous chamber music groups under the direction of Mr. Harry Ko- bialka and, taking a "busman's holiday," plays while her pianist- friends accompany her. Her fa- vorite composers are Beethoven and Mozart, although she thinks that she may be prejudiced be- cause she's been working on a Beethoven concert this fall. Majors in English Lit "What seems to surprise many Margaret Torbert '46 people is that I'm not majoring in music but in English Lit," Margie said. However, she is taking almost enough music to major in that too, and figures that if she were a music major she would spend 99 per cent instead of only 90 per cent of her time in Billings. In that remaining 10 per cent of her time, Margie manages to get her other work done, to be a class member on Superior Court, to write music criticisms for Neivs, and to be a member of TZE. Last year she was Vil Jun- ior at Joslyn and in her sopho- more year was treasurer of C.A. She especially enjoys her Eng- lish major, claiming that she takes it mainly because she felt the need of a well-rounded edu- cation, and thinks that "when great things have been said they should be read about and studied." After graduation, Margie hopes to do graduate work in music, perhaps at Radcliffe, and then to write about music or teach it in college. Srta. Mistral, Nobel Winner, Lectured Here Gabriela Mistral, recent winner of the 1945 Nobel prize for litera- ture, has visited and lectured at Wellesley. In December of 1930 she lectured on "The Writings of Rue- ben Dario" under the auspices of the Department of Spanish. Gabriela Mistral is the pen- name of Lucila Godoy, Chilean poet, teacher, and diplomat, the first Latin-American author to win the Nobel prize. She started her career as a teacher in a rural school in Chile, where she met with notable success, moving up rapidly in literary circles. She later went to Mexico to help in systematizing schools there. Since writing did not provide sufficient money, she received an appointment as Chilean consul in Madrid, where she handled her country's commercial relations.

Service Fund Over the Top Wellesley has gone over the top in the Service Fund drive by more than $1500, it has been an- nounced by Irene Peterson '46, chairman of Service Fund. Con- tributions totaled $16,250.02, and more than $9000 of the amount has already been paid, consider- ably over the result in previous drives. All proceeds from the 1947 Junior Show have been turned over to Service Fund to go into the Foster Parents Plan, Inc. This amounts to $262.03 with more money expected to come from the sale of records. $180 provides food and clothing for one child for a year. One child will be adopted this term, and it is expected that another can be adopted next term when the money from the sale of records is turned in. Service Fund officials have stressed the tremendous import- ance of the work of canvassers in the dormitories. Besides the House Reps themselves, assist- ance was given by girls on each floor.

The comments on individual books are enlightening and point up some of the difficulties involved in the preparation of suggested readings. I have selected several pairs of quotations to illustrate some of the differences of opinion which were expressed. "Crime and Punishment has made a greater impression on me than anything I have ever read." "It seemed to me that Crime and Punishment is out of date." 'To tfie Finland Sta- tion gives a good account of a phase of history not known to me." "To the Finland Station is the very worst of the types of books on the list."

"As for Mont -Saint-Michel it is too technical and specialized to be of general interest." Of the books which were read by a consider- able number of people, Cellini s Autobiography and Trollope's Bar- chester Towers seem to stand out as uninteresting and not reward- ing to most of the readers. It has been of interest to me to discover the wide range of read- ing habits and ability, of interest and of taste in a group of people which is perhaps as homogeneous in most respects as any which could be found in America. The reactions indicated seem to show that many students have the capacity to find interest and en- joyment in an admittedly difficult book. Apnarently, however, there are also many who lack this capa- city. To them I should like to recommend beginning now the practice of keeping one difficult book at hand and reading in it a little at a time. Those who try the experiment will surely be re- warded. ,. The question of recommending summer reading another year has not yet been discussed by the faculty. I wish to assure all those who returned their reports to the Committee that their views will be considered when this matter comes up for discussion and I wish to thank especially those members of the class who have assistedjhe Ex-Producer Of a Play Says Wellesley Students "Are All the Same" by Boum Rosencram '',: "I didn't have a distinguished career, but I did have fun," laugh- ed Miss Gertrude Greig, Instruc- tor in the Department of Econ- omics, as she attacked a ham sandwich in the Well. As an undergraduate at Wash- ington Square College, a co-ed division of New York University where she majored in psychology, Miss Greig devoted a great deal of time to dramatics. In fact, she and her friends spent a very much extended lunch-hour each day writing plays. Miss Greig even produced one of her plays with the dramatic society. Though she insists that her plays were very bad, she admits that they were of some value for, because they were so inferior, they gave confidence to another young writer of the lunch-hour crowd, Vladi- mir Moseyvitch Cherkasay, who later wrote a successful Broad- way play and a short story which was judged one of "The Best Short Stories of '39."

Campus Critic tf Barry Play 'The Joyous Season' Opens, Starring Ethel Barrymore New Play Falls Short of Usual Barry Standard; Miss Barrymore Outshines Fair Supporting Cast Noted Authors Are Guests At War Bond Rally Wellesley's first Victory Book and Author Bond Rally, with the slogan "The Bigger the Bond, the Better the Seat," was held Tues- day evening, November 27 in Alumnae Hall under the joint sponsorshio of the Village and the College War Finance Committees. Speakers at the rally were Mary Vardoulakis, Wellesley '44, author of Gold in the Streets, for which she won the Inter-Collegiate Fellowship in 1945; George and Helen Papashvilly, co-authors of the recent best-seller Anything Can Happen, and Miss Louise P. Smith of the Biblical History Depart- ment. Autographed copies of the authors' books were on sale after the rally. Miss Barbara Trask of the De- partment of Music, faculty head of the War Finance Committee, Mary Jo Lamb '46, student head, and Pauline Auger '48, assistant student head, represented the col- lege in the drive. The Joyous Season does not rep- resent Philip Barry at his best. Somewhere, the play falls short of the usual Barry-esque ingenuity and versatility. The story, which is concerned with the Farleys, a newly-arrived Irish family in Boston, and their subsequent loss of the vigorous attitude toward life which enabled them to rise from a small farm to Beacon Hill, had good entertainment possibil- ities. Christina, the member of the family who had become a nun fifteen years before, is a strong and appealing character who helps to set her family back on the right path, with words of worldly wis- dom. Yet despite the many good elements in the play, they seem never to fit together in a smooth and finished piece of work. Accomplishes too Much Dynamic and interesting a character though she is, Christina manages during the few short hours of her visit to her family to accomplish rather too much. When she arrives on the scene, she is greeted with scepticism LIGGETT DRUG GO. Tel. WEL. 1001 539 Washington St. amounting almost to antagonism, when she takes the 4:40 train out of Boston, she has completely changed the various philosophies of life of different members of the family. The immediate problem of the play was the choosing of a house for a convent school. Christina had her choice, by her father's will, of taking either her family's town house or their old country homestead to use as a school. The necessity of making this choice was insisted upon earlier in the play, but the playwright seemed to more or less lose interest in the problem by the end of the third act. It dwindles off into mere hints at a decision, and Christina's suggestion that her brothers chose for themselves. Barrymore and Conroy Excellent If many people were disappoint- ed in the play, however, few could have been disappointed in Ethel Barrymore, "the grand old lady" of the American stage. Her per- formance as Christina, the nun, was not a great performance; the role itself was too inelastic to permit of much subtlety of inter- pretation. But no one in the au- dience could have been unaware of the fact that he was witnessing a finished and expert performance.

Terry Farley, played by Mary Welch, succeeded in creating the impres- sion of a worried wife, but she did not move too easily on stage. Frank Conroy, as John Farley, was perhaps the one member of the cast who was really able to "stand up" to Barrymore. Speak- ing loudly and aggressively, he was very convincing as the suc- cessful and slightly pompous older brother. The Joyous Season may succeed in New York despite its faults. It seems to be a weak enough struc- ture on the whole, however, to make us wonder how Ethel Bar- rymore ever dared to gamble on appearing in this particular play. '47 Displays 'BodyPolitic' Successfully Wellesley Reaches the White House "In Oue Way or Another" Junior Show, version '47, The Body Politic, has come but not gone. It's destined to live on and on, perhaps forever. The audiences still quote lines from the clever script, in fact "I hope that's not just an empty metaphor" threatens to become traditional along with Jane Pate's nasal rendition of "I ornfields dominate Nebraska." Even seniors are caught singing l lie songs. One was overhead to ad- mit that it was the best show she'd ever seen. Everyone seems to agree that this Junior Show left all its predecessors far behind. (No we don't mean in time only but — quality, the thing that counts. Can anyone think of a better word for Jean Lazarus' "Honey, What You Do To Me!" — besides the obvious ones?) '47 proved that it can do any- thing, sing, dance, act, write, and even predict things to come, 21 years in advance. It's inevitable with all that talent, we might have known was lurking beneath that academic evterior, that by 19fi8 the class of '47 will have not only a "Carlton" in the White House but also in every other limelight shin- in"- forth. We predict Dottie deLutio be- hind Broadway lights thrilling her audiences, there as here, with that low, smooth voice and casual air.

"For a World Federation, na- tions need not give up all their sovereignty," Dr. Nash said. Just as the state controls its own af- fairs in our own system, national matters under an - international Miss Greig - (Continued from Page J,) sity, Miss Greig went to Bryn Mawr, where she received a mas- ter's degree in political science and sociology. From there she went to Washington to work for the government. "I kept my name for five years while the bureau changed its name three times from FERA to CWA to WPA." Her woi k with this protean agency consisted of turning out "aboul 150 pounds of statistics." Her job was to classify the types of work projects under the three pro- grams; while keeping 77 classifi- cations in her head she went aroun.I with a red pencil codify- ing the reports as they came in. Although Miss Greig returned to New York with the intention of resting, she soon found herself with two jobs. Besides studying for her Doctor's orals in econom- ics at Columbia, she did research :<i the Twentieth Century Fund mi "Power Resources in the U. S." Miss Greig insists that she was hired as an ordinary typist and was only promoted to re- search because it cost her boss so much when she kicked over the typewriter. Before coming to Wellesley four years ago, Miss Greig taught at Brooklyn College. The thine that impresses her most about Welles- ley students is that "they're all Mi, same." As a result she re- peatedly calls the role of the 10-40 class at 9:40. "Although I can't set-up would still be in the hands of respective countries. Fanatics Needed "There is a forest fire at our backs. We must leap the chasm or perish!" Dr. Nash warned. Gradually, according to Dr. Nash, is dangerous in this urgency. "We shall waste every moment we spend working in UNO structure," said this peaceworker, favoring a complete scrapping of the organ- ization. With statements from Air Chief Marshall Harris of the RAF who labeled defense against the atomic bomb as "virtually impos- sible," and Anthony Eden who de- clared sovereignty "on the way out," Dr. Nash praised fanatical devotion to the immediate forma- tion of a World Federation. Examining the heart of the problem, retention of sovereignty, he described sovereign power as "the most immoral thing in human life today, since it gives a nation the right to exercise its own in- terests, irrespective of other countries."

City -Stats Deutscher Verein, will hold its annual Christmas Meeting in TZE December 5. "The program," said Sue Dorntge '48, Treasurer of the club, "will be reminiscent of a Ger- man Christmas." Four short plays, centering about the Nativity, will be presented. These plays have been translated into modern German from the medieval German in which they were written by Miss Elsa Liefeld, Instructor in German and faculty adviser to Deutscher Vcrchu The program will also include the sing- ing of German Christmas carols. "There She Goes." "Things Are Going My Way" starring Sue Ferris, Mike Ernst, and Judy Sly was unbeatable. Jo Lundholm had us all standing up, the better for to see her mag- nificent dance. Alyson Dudley and Helen Storey Carlton left nothing to be desired in their portrayal of Leslie's efficient and feminine selves. Choregraphy credits for that ballet go to Jackie Cum- mings, Sherry Yarwood, Mary Hardiman. And where have you seen such costumes as Lyn Cap- lan's outside of a Hollywood pro- duction? We could go on indefinitely, with laurels for all the cast and all the staffs. Everyone connected with this colossal oerformance was ter- rific. Who wil forpret Janie Miller's "We of Wellesley" and "I Wanted You." for instance? For lack of space only we confine ourselves to giving snecial honors to the heads; Migga Ignatius, head of the com- mittee that turned out the clever- est lines ever to emerge in a Jun- ior Show: Jean Rowland, head of music: Windy McWorter, head of makeup; Pee Goodwilh'e, head of design ; Ann Farley, Head of Pro- duction; Dottie Schcmfuss, head of B'icinoos. 3"d all the rest. To MAXINE RTTBLITZ. director, and NAN WFISER, Head of Junior Show, o-o the thanks of nil the class and the biggest, showiest tributes to be had. B. J.
